Exercises: 10 Mistakes that Most People Make
Tips for Yoga Teachers
Most competent professionals are not satisfied with their careers, they are always looking for ways to get better at what they do, and this applies to yoga teachers who want to excel at their profession and be able to give their customers an excellent service. One of the way to be a good teacher is to maximize on every opportunity that they get to teach because it is not everyone that is born with a knack for teaching and when someone is starting out, they need to be frank about their weaknesses and strengths. The individual has to take one category at a time, like sequencing suitably according to the level, and then the teacher needs to communicate with their students in a language that they comprehend because the only way to refine one’s teaching skills is by sharing what they love and their practice.
The person also needs to create a plan to get teaching jobs and in sometimes after the person has completed their training they might be asked by friends and associates to give free lessons or classes and initially these can be great opportunities to hone their teaching skills but may the person may need to focus on networking with other tutors and get their name in the yoga industry. Coming up with a plan to seek jobs and following the plan is crucial and the person can take cues from their own yoga practice of tapas by creating a resume because teaching yoga is a real profession and they need to show employers how serious they are about working for them. If the person does not get an immediate response, they should not be worried, but they can make follow-ups by either emailing or physically following up again if they get no response after some weeks. If the person has set their sights on working in a particular place they can work their way into the organization gently by maybe taking classes there, asking for front desk work or helping out at events or festivals and the person needs to remember that there is a possibility that if there is a long list of teachers then they might have to wait for a while before they get their foot in the door. In the event that the person does not get a direct job, they can ask to be put on the substitution list because subbing is an excellent opportunity for the students to get to know them and if the owners of the business and the fellow teachers think they are capable and reliable they can be hired.
